New Delhi: There has been a decline in the cases of corona infection across the country, but cases of infection are continuously coming to the fore. In such a situation, the Union Health Ministry has denied reports of a sudden increase in the number of TB cases in patients recovering from Kovid-19 infection.
The Union Health Ministry says that cases of corona infection and TB should not be combined. So far no concrete evidence or any scientific evidence of any kind has come to the fore. The government says that both diseases are contagious and mainly attack the lungs, but so far it would not be right to accuse both.
In fact, some time back some reports claimed that doctors of Madhya Pradesh have found that the number of TB patients is suddenly increasing and all of them are related to Kovid. At the same time, after the Union Health Ministry refuted reports of a connection between corona infection and TB, the government has said that due to the “effect of restrictions related to Kovid-19” in 2020, the notification of TB cases in India has increased by about 25 percent. has decreased.
However, the ministry says that due to weak immunity in cases of post-Covid infection, TB virus can infect a person recovering from Kovid. The Ministry of Health says that ‘TB bacilli’ can exist in humans in an inactive state and can spread very rapidly when a person’s immunity is weakened due to any reason.
According to the ministry, even though there is no risk of TB infection due to corona infection, the weakened immune system of a patient who has recovered after Kovid is not able to fight the TB virus completely, due to which individuals can become infected with TB. The ministry also said that in early August 2020, several advisories have been issued regarding TB testing among Kovid-19 patients.
